Safe and durable houses
The life span of log houses is very long. A building made of solid wood can last for hundreds of years when it has been designed and built correctly to protect it from humidity and extreme weather conditions. Honka has unrivalled expertise in the field based on years of research and testing and the fact that we have delivered over 85,000 log buildings worldwide.
pioneering log technology
Being the first industrial manufacturer of log houses in the world, Honka has always been at the very forefront of the wood processing industry. Our continuous research and development efforts are based on our values of furthering healthy, sustainable and safe living.
The high level of automation in production helps ensure that the woodwork behind every Honka house is dimensionally accurate, which makes the on-site installation and building processes quick and precise. The houses are built in co-operation with our global network of trained Honka builders. We are proud to say that we make some of the most airtight, watertight, fire safe and earthquake-resistant homes on the market.
The quality of Honka houses is based on knowhow passed on through generations, ongoing development work and co-operation with a global network of leading experts. Our participation in Japan’s earthquake studies and fire testing in Finland is an example of our research collaboration efforts. We are also involved in moisture research in Finland and in airtightness and energy testing in Germany. The VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, an unbiased third party, controls and audits our quality assurance process.
